Critic Reviews for The Full Picture

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

The story is stronger than the individual scenes, and the characters often talk like sitcom stars stuck in a drama. But there are moments of fun, with a particularly strong ending.

Audience Reviews for The Full Picture

The production quality is pretty weak, but there was something about this movie that I enjoyed anyway. The dialogue is realistic and quirky, and while the acting isn't great, somehow it managed to suck me in nonetheless. I doubt I'd be likely to sit through this again, but the characters are just enough fun that I really wanted to stick with it.
